The Pittini Group is a reference in the field of production and supply of high quality low carbon content wire rod and provides excellent logistic and packaging service to customers.
Wire rod for drawn wires is manufactured so as to obtain the best drawing with good surface finish. Therefore it is suitable for chemical pickling and mechanical descaling. It is produced in qualities that allow to reach diameter reductions lower than one millimeter or in grades having silicon contents that ensure the best hot zinc plating can be obtained. Boron wire rods are very ductile and can achieve larger cross-section reductions while still being highly workable.
Wire rod for reinforced concrete structures is designed so that the resulting products, after processing – cold rolled wires, electro-welded meshes and lattice girders – comply with the specifications laid down in the regulations in force in Italy and abroad.
Also wire rod Fe36 is worth mentioning, as it meets the features required by steel S235JR according to norm EN 10025-2, as per the European Regulation 305/2011 no.Fe36-CPR-2013-07.
Wire rod for welding wires has low impurity contents to ensure proper behaviours when further processed, with fast diameter reductions and related mechanical stress relieving.
The wire rods produced by this plant are intended for various applications.
High carbon wire rods G3V80 and G3V82 are destined to the production of braids and strands for pre-stressed concrete as they reach high ductility strengths testified by breaking point values till 1240 MPa, with a minimum necking of 30%.
High carbon wire rods G3V60 and G3V72 are used to produce meshes to reinforce tyres or to produce springs.
Finally also medium carbon wire rods are manufactured. They are suitable for the production of nails, clips and other various applications.
The Pittini Group is making huge investments to totally renew the manufacturing plant in Verona. In particular, the wire rod rolling mill will be entirely renovated to offer increasingly higher quality products.
